Your build looks great other than the memory. For both gaming and editing you will want faster memory. I've been using a lot of G.Skill memory in my workstation builds for work lately and all the chips perform perfectly across 4 heavily used machines. Here is a 8gb (2x 4gb) 2133mhz kit of the Ares.

Very affordable and very quick, especially to get that high bandwidth for any editing tasks. If you got more into editing large files later on, you can even get a 16gb kit and setup a ramdisk to use as your scratch disk for the editing program, it flies.

Haswell technically only is supposed to take 1.5v ram. And for 1.5v 2133mhz ram (unless you don't mind ram overvolting), there are few, but this is the most common http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

However, ram affects gaming performance pretty negligibly. There might be a 1 or 2% incresae in framerates between 1600mhz and 2133. (also, btw, 2133 seems to do better than any other, including faster ram like 3000mhz, when in gaming.)
